Ronald M Brown
With deep sadness the family of Ronald Maurice Brown, Summerfield announce his passing November 22, 2022 at the River View Manor, Bath NB. Ronald was born at the homestead in Summerfield, the second child of the late Maurice and Emma (Smith) Brown.

Ronald, AKA “Farmer” “Dad” “Father” “Grampie” “Grandpa” “Daddy-son” BUT never Ron or Ronnie, lived a quiet life by today’s standards, a” low tech man in a high tech world”. Growing up, work was plentiful on the farm but there was always down time for play.

Ronald attended local rural school and then Centreville Regional High School, graduating in 1964. In the fall of 1964, he enlisted in the Canadian Navy and completed Basic Training. Ronald received an Honorable Discharge for compassionate reasons and returned to the farm.

Ronald travelled a whole three miles to court and married Betty White in 1965. Together, they instilled the value of hard work and the importance of family in their three children.

Ronald loved farming and he loved to travel. In the late 1960’s, he became a part time tractor-trailer driver. Eventually, this lead to Ronald owing his own trucking company along with the farm. After selling his own trucks and retiring from farming, he continued driving truck for other local companies until April 2021.

Each week he headed down the road for a new adventure. Keeping in touch with his family and trucking buddies Allan and Dave to help pass the time. Weekends were for home and family and Sunday morning coffee.

Ronald is Survived by his partner Betty, son Kevin (Denise), Summerfield and their daughter Shelby (Josh) Oromocto. Daughter Jane (Michael), Greenfield and Daughter Andrea (Jason), Donagh PEI grandchildren Liam, Emma and Aiden.

Ronald always said he was a plain man, no suits or ties, preferring T-shirts and work pants. He asked that anyone coming to say “Goodbye” come wearing their favorite T-shirt.

Ronald's family would like to thank the administration and staff of River View Manor for their kind and loving care of dad while he was there.
